Question description

In this project, you will create a database to contain tables of batting
                     statistics for major league baseball teams. You will then create a table
                     named teamstats in the baseball_stats database and add records
                  to the new table from a file named team_stats.txt in your Projects
         1.   Log in to MySQL Monitor with your root account or with the

                                            user name and password supplied by your ISP or instructor.
         2.   Enter the following command to create a database named
                                            mysql> CREATE DATABASE baseball_stats;[ENTER ]

        3.   After you see the “Query OK” message, enter the following
                                            command to select the baseball_stats database:
                                            mysql> USE baseball_stats;[ENTER ]
4.   After you see the “Database changed” message, type
        the following command to ensure that you selected the
        baseball_stats database:
        mysql> SELECT DATABASE();[ENTER ]

   5.   Enter the following command to create the teamstats table.
        The Team field uses the VARCHAR data type. Eleven of the col-                   439
        umns use INT data types, and the remaining two fields use
        FLOAT data types. Each of the statistical field names uses com-
        mon baseball abbreviations, such as G for games, AB for at-
        bats, R for runs, and HR for home runs.
        mysql> CREATE TABLE teamstats (Team VARCHAR(50),
        FirstYear INT,[ENTER ]
            -> G INT, W INT, L INT, Pennants INT, WS INT,[ENTER ]
            -> R INT, AB INT, H INT, HR INT, AVG FLOAT,[ENTER ]
            -> RA INT, ERA FLOAT);[ENTER ]

   6.   After you see the “Query OK” message, enter the following
        command to display the structure of the new table:
        mysql> DESCRIBE teamstats;[ENTER ]

   7.   Enter a LOAD DATA statement that inserts records from the
        team_stats.txt file in your Projects directory for Chapter 7
                                                                         Use the
        into the teamstats table. Replace path_to_PHP_folders with
                                                                         MySQL serv-
        the full path for your PHP_Projects directory for Chapter 7.     er’s direc-
        mysql> LOAD DATA INFILE 'path_to_PHP_folders/                    tory path,
        Chapter.07/Projects/team_stats.txt'[ENTER ]                      not the Web
            -> INTO TABLE teamstats;[ENTER ]                             URL path.

   8.   After you see the “Query OK” message, enter the following
        command to view all the records in the teamstats table:
        mysql> SELECT * FROM teamstats;[ENTER ]
